    I don't have a 3DS yet, but both my Lites and my XL do the same thing

    at $250 I found that unacceptable, but to each their own.

    It be irony yet sad if the wobble worriers were the first ones to break.

    Or maybe I'm wrong and it shouldn't be no wobble.

    I dont see the issue here. Its not broken, it just isn't tightly fit for the area inbetween clicks to lock the screen in place. Its not some kind of design flaw, its just how it is.

    A slight wobble on my EU aqua blue model, but not anything that I consider a problem. It doesn't affect gameplay or the 3D effects because of the way I hold the system, so it doesn't bother me.

    I have a Japanese Model, it slightly wobble.... It's annoying as hell when I first get it..

    It's totally unacceptable with what I paid for, which is 350USD on playasia....

    It's also come with small smudge scratch on the left edge of top case, which it really freaks me out when I paid premium for it..

    Wobble is starting to annoy me a lot more. Nothing I can't do about it but yeah when they release the 3DS lite or whatever way down the track i'm assuming this will be fixed and I will 100% definitely upgrade. Such an annoying design flaw

    Why are so many people bothered by the wobbling? Are you constantly shaking your 3DS when playing or something?

    It wobbles a bit for me, but not like in that YouTube video from the first post. Still, a bit annoying. [​IMG] I don't notice it while playing, but I hate to know it wobbles... it makes me want to get a new one [​IMG]

    Cosmo Black. Wobble: Yes

    When I first got my 3DS it just barely wobbled but after a few days of use it has gotten so annoying that I had to return it for a full refund.

    I pretty much have the same problem as described by iMasaru, bigpaws, whendarknessfall... and many others.

    While playing Street fighter I have to move the system a fair bit while I input button combinations. The screen is starting to wobble very easily especially while I play with the screen upright instead of laying down. Even while playing with the screen laying flat it sometimes falls back with little movement.

    This is already enough to annoy the crap out of me but the biggest issue I have with it is the extremely irritating squeaking/creaking noises it makes while the screen wobbles. I was playing Super Street Fighter against a friend online and the screen was wobbling, and squeaking/creaking like crazy. The screen even fell back once. I move the system a bit while playing. I don't shake it like a baby or anything but some movement is expected while playing a fighting game especially for online matches. Have you ever seen how loud people slam those joysticks and buttons while playing the arcade versions of Street Fighter? It's nothing close to that but I do move it much more than while playing other types of games.

    I love Nintendo's first party games and all the great 3rd party games that were on the DS but I noticed a steep decline in the sturdiness of the hinge within a few days and the squeaking/creaking is way too irritating for me to ignore. I lost trust in this version of the 3DS and now I'm forced to wait until the next one which might not be released for another 2 years.

    I have a DSi that has the tiniest bit of wobble but overall it feels like a rock when compared to the 3ds and it doesn't have that annoying squeaking.

    Mine only wobbles if I physically move it myself. If I play, I have no issues.

    Definitely, even with no pressure.

    Should I exchange it at Costco? It's really annoying me, since I'm a perfectionist....

    I have the wobble thing, it's exactly the same thing as in the video. First thing I noticed about my 3DS. It doesn't bother me too much, though.

    It's moved only if I put good amount of pressure in it. So, no wobble for mine.
